Home to more than 20,000 students and 650 faculty members, Texas A&M University College of Engineering is one of the largest engineering schools in the world. Its mission is to serve Texas, the nation, and the global community by providing graduates who are well founded in engineering fundamentals, instilled with the highest standards of professional and ethical behavior, and prepared to meet the complex technical challenges facing society today.
Providing students with the latest learning technology has always been a top priority for the College of Engineering. For the massive, newly renovated Zachry Engineering Education Complex, the mission was to revolutionize education by replacing the traditional lecture hall learning model with easy, high-quality content sharing and collaboration between instructors and students.
Equip the 39 active learning studios, 37 student schedulable meeting spaces, and more than 130 conference rooms and huddles spaces with technology worktables, wireless presentation connectivity, and interactive multi-device sharing screens with stunning 4K content delivered by Crestron DM NVX™ network AV technology. Additionally, deploy an advanced room scheduling solution to optimize usage of the meeting spaces.
More than 700 DM NVX encoder/decoder devices throughout the complex enable lightning-fast distribution of flawless content from students’ and instructors’ laptop computers. Engineered for demanding conference room and classroom applications, DM NVX ensures realtime, 4K60 video performance for the presentation of multimedia, videoconferencing, and live camera images. “We wanted a solution that our students and staff could depend on,” explains Henry. “DM NVX is that solution. It not only delivers premier image quality, it also ensures no latency, allowing us to deliver the best possible classroom experience.”
